In study of colour and psychological significance pink is a hue favoured most commonly by either the indulged soul used to privilege, or someone seeking to regain the innocence of childhood. Yumi the main character of Pink, a women’s comic by Kyoko Okazaki done in 1989, is both. There is much that can be said about Pink, analyzed, read over and over. It’s a story demanding a certain level of attention and thought from the reader. Some cultural notes for the English edition would have been of use as well since the comic captures a Japan of decades ago. There are plenty of references to pop culture as well as then current events of which understanding is likely lost without familiarity or explanation. Like one character in the story who expresses that their mind always has things in it that when written down come out as gibberish and rambling, Pink is a book stuffed with things to say and words probably don’t suffice in the end about what it all means.
On a purely individual level, I strongly have an aversion to Pink. Particular content in the story strikes a personal sensitivity evoking upsetting negative emotions. To be certain this is a mature Japanese comic for a mature audience with nudity, adult themes, sexual content and violence. Any of these aspects might warrant reader discretion. How much the inclusion or presentation of each in Pink is intended as shock or vulgarity is still something I’m undecided about. However, the story includes the one thing I can’t handle even though it’s fictional. Susceptible animal lovers should be warned or properly prepared.

This story is absolutely interesting, i loved the story and all the characters. It might be the best read for everyone because it does have sexual content in it however the story is great. I would recommend this to an adult or teenager, fantastic readWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
